Iron Monkey Strength

Iron Monkey Strength has a mission to bring strength and sustainable fitness to communities by helping them learn and master safe and effective lifting techniques. Most new students will be required to complete our 8-12 week Training Program we call the Iron Monkey Rite of Passage. This program includes a program, 2 private coaching sessions per week, 1 open lift session (programmed by our head coach), Inbody Testing, and unlimited support and care. After completing the program students are able to safely and effectively practice the 6 basic kb (swing, tgu, squat, press, clean, and snatch) and 5 basic barbell exercises (front squat, back squat, bench press, military press, and deadlift).
